"This is the best day ever!" proclaimed Max. He had an outstanding birthday. Sarah did a tremendous job organizing, planning and pulling off a kid party with a football theme. Max got tons of toys, I don't know where we are going to put them. Oh yeah, we now own too many footballs. I never thought I would say that.
Then Daddy dropped the ball. After the pizza, cake and presents part of the party was over, I volunteered to hang back and clean up while Sarah and the other two mom's and her mom took the kids out to the dunes. Papa and I cleaned up the area and hauled everything back up to the RV. There I made the mistake of turning on the TV to find the Cowboys game had just started.
I didn't make it out to the dunes. Instead, I selfishly stayed home and watched the game. That didn't go over well. There were stern looks presented and some terse words. I apologized repeatedly and I lived to fight another day.
